[applause] the good government awards also support spur's good government work. it is a central part of our mission. our agenda is admittedly ambitious. we analyze every local measure on the san francisco ballot, which until recently was a pretty formidable task. we participate in most of the major issues of city government from pension and payroll tax reform to some of the most important discussions on how we fund a lot of our public services, whether that finding different revenue streams for our parks, are trying to find new ways to fund public transportation in the city. we're very happy to be working with mayor lee and the board to address a lot of these issues. this will clearly be a busy year for us. another component of our work is connecting the city's robuspro o assistance with our many business partners. this is a core part of mfac original purpose in san

and bounds we have taken as a city * . i was proud in 2010 to help move forward legislation to really bring together city departments to work in a coordinated way with our committee on information technology. to help create a chief information officer position for the city. i was also proud to work with then mayor newsome in passing the first generation of open data legislation that we have. but as our civil grand jury in june pointed out, our i-t in san francisco is still in need of a culture shock. and this is where all of us come in today. we have 200 data sets that have already been put out there, but by and large the data sets put out by city government are data sets that i think show us in a very positive way. from my perspective, it's important for us to keep on pushing data sets that allow us to deal with the sometimes imperfections in city government. to figure it out, where it is we need to take risks, we are we can be more entrepreneurial, where we can be more transparent and frank little more accountable to all of you as the residents and as our customers here in city government
morning, everybody. welcome to city hall. i would like to invite all the family and now katie tang who is now supervisor. i would like to thank former mayor willie brown. he's graced us with his presence and thank me for not wearing the orange jacket this morning although i felt that i should because we got two people who i think represent world series types of personalities and contributions to the city. i would like to thank all the of the elected officials to our city attorney to the treasurer, department head, everyone you see before us that i think understand the importance of having both a colleague at the board. i have the pleasure on this momentous occasion of honoring of swearing in carmen and katie. congratulations.

, our -- the city's expenditures are projected to increase by 1.1 billion dollars over the five year period, that's about 25% growth, and the largest share of that is our salary and fringe benefit costs which are growing we're projecting 460 million dollars, there are a number of citywide cost increase that is are assumed in this plan, things like fully funding our capital plan, our it plan and equipment costs, the plan also assumes that we fully fund inflation on grants as well as other non-personnel services, so that's all the contracts, grants, and other types of expenditures that are not staff costs. >> supervisor breed? >> yes, can you please explain what you mean by fully fund capital plan? >> happy to answer that question, supervisor, so the capital plan which will be before you in two weeks i think recommends a certain level of expenditure on the city's capital assets, it includes things like streets, facilities, maintenance, that sort of thing. the plan recommends a certain level of general fund support. this year, i believe it's approximately 80 million dollars, and that nu
platform with the hierarchical structure from the top down, enabling the city to actually manage all of their own financial transactions. from ticketing, reservations, permitting, just about every component you can think of, of interacting with the city as a business itself, which most people -- which is kind of a big differentiation factor in developing this. so, as far as creating access to the public, using the open data sets, and creating exposure to neighborhoods that you probably traditionally didn't even think were there, we realized there were 1200 different facilities all through the park -- all through the city as we were going out to explore. and upon our own discovery, and i being a local native, i didn't know about 800 of them. so, as we move forward into the future, taking this, working with some other departments like san francisco arts, we're creating access for people, creating efficiency with the government being able to manage transactions, creating a platform for people to actually interact with the city on a level that hasn't been done before. so, ideally, using
places in the city. there is truly a bee hive of activity of the newest innovations that san francisco will be famous for. i also love the fact that just a couple of blocks from here is where our san francisco giants are moving on to the world series. but just in this room, all of you are giants and making sure that san francisco is the world champion when it comes to innovation. >>> 13 years ago, i like all of you started a company. i started in i-ti a technology company in the 1.0 world. it was a company that created technology to connect citizens better with government * . i ran it for almost nine years. and when i was elected to office four years ago, i was unfortunately more surprised than i wanted to be about how far behind san francisco government was. this was very 2008, 2009. with you i'm really proud of the leaps and bounds we have taken as a city * . i was proud in 2010 to help move forward legislation to really bring together city departments to work in a coordinated way with our committee on information technology. to help create a chief information officer position for th
dollars, as you can see in the chart that's on the screen, over the five years, our city revenues are projected to grow by 13%, but our expenditures are expected to grow by 25% over that same period of time. and that difference creates our projected deficit shortfall that we're going to talk about how to close. on the revenue side, i would highlight, these are strong revenue projections and so over the next five years, 578, nearly 600 million dollars of revenue growth to the city. the growth is supported by, you know, the overall economic condition of the city including our property tax base, so housing prices, the strength of our tourism economy as well as job growth. as you might imagine, revenue projections are sensitive to the overall economic condition of the city so to the degree that the pay for the recovery is slower or federal spending cuts are more significant than what we -- than we're factoring in at the moment, those projections could change. overall, the plan assumes more conservative growth rates on revenue in the third, fourth and fifth years of the plan. one to ha
